We haven’t even seen the full release of Call of Duty: WWII yet and already we may have an indication of what to expect when developer Treyarch Studios takes to the directorial helm for next year’s entry in the venerable first-person shooter series.
The hint of where Call of Duty 2018 will take place comes courtesy of a job listing for a Systems Designer on the developer’s official website where underneath the job specification it’s mentioned that a ‘deep knowledge base of firearms and modern military technology’ is a desired trait for any prospective employee.
If true it’ll surely be music to the ears of Call of Duty fans after extended stints in in futuristic settings which culminated in the much-publicized outcry heard prior to the release of last year’s Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
It’s worth noting that developer Treyarch Studios has yet to develop a Call of Duty title in the modern day, instead deciding to ply their trade in World War I, the Vietnam War, and of course, the future with its most recent entry Call of Duty: Black Ops III.
The last time a Call of Duty was set in the modern day was back in 2011 with Raven Software’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 so if you ask us it’s high time to return to the setting that kicked off the series’ explosion into the public consciousness.
